My name is Jason and along with another military vet, we started Tech For Vets. We are a 501(c)(3). We collect donations to provide military veterans with computer hardware. We are working with veterans and veteran organizations across the country.
The impact of our organization is that our veterans are able to make an easier transition to civilian life. In today's world it is hard to search for a job, get an education or stay in touch with friends without the use of a computer. There are so many veterans past and present that have exited the military very under privileged. We are here to help them succeed in today's world.
We are looking to raise $5,000.00 in 90 days. All contribution are tax deductible. The money will be used to purchase laptops and desktops for our veterans. The computers will to go the veterans directly and also to veteran organizations that will create community computer areas to help all the veterans within their community.
Please help any way that you can. Our Facebook page is facebook.com/techforvets and twitter account is twitter.com/techforvets
Please spread the word and help us help our vets. We are looking to make 2012 a great year for veterans all over the country. These men and women are the ones who defend our freedom on a daily basis. Please give what you can to ensure they all get what they deserve. A computer will help them in many many ways. Below are some kind words from vets we have helped.
